Watch D.O.G.S.

An innovative educational initiative to encourage fatherly involvement developed by the National Center for Fathering.

Who Are WatchDOGS?

Dads Of Great Students, or WatchDOGS, are fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and other father-figures who volunteer at least one day each year at an official WATCH D.O.G.S.® school. During the day, these men read, work on flash cards with students, play at recess, eat lunch with students, provide security in the school entrances and hallways, assist with traffic flow, as well as any other assigned activities where they actively engage with not only their own children, but other students as well.

Get involved!

Many school principals have reported that the mere presence of a WatchDOG dramatically reduces reports of bullying. On the day of their participation, WatchDOGS are given a brief review of their involvement and they wear an official WATCH D.O.G.S.® t-shirt with a disposable ‘Dog Tag’ identifying them as WatchDOGS. Are you a father figure to a student at GCA? Think you have what it takes to be a WatchDOG? We'd love for you to get involved and play a small part in making GCA a place where the whole family can take ownership!
